I heard a few places that the little grip cut out is annoying

Not sure why; the Gen 2s and most Gen 3s had the grip cutout, and it never seemed to bother anybody. It has never bothered me on my G17, which is a Gen 2, though the -17 is also the Glock I shoot least.

I guess I can see how it would be annoying on a shorter grip, like that of a G19, especially for anyone with bigger hands.

So is the Gen 5 9mm only for the time being?

Very likely, for the reason I mentioned in a previous post:

So at the very least, they'll have to keep producing Gen 4 Glocks in the larger calibers until they solve the engineering challenges associated with removing the locking block pin on the 9mm Gen 5s.

Since I don't have a G26, I'll just get it in Gen 5

I mean, I can see why they wouldn't make .40's, but c'mon now get them 10mms and .45s out on the market, Gaston

While Glock doesn’t release sales data, I imagine that their .40 S&W pistols are still outselling the 10mm and .45 ACP models (though of course, sales have probably started dropping since the market is moving away from .40). So economically, it would make more sense to produce the .40s first.

Yeah but everyone needs a longslide 10mm or .45, even if they don't know it yet
